The Orpheum Theatre has great Broadway shows. The theatre is beautiful. Only negative is the small seats with minimal leg room. Just saw Les Miserables there. Awesome show. Parking can be a problem since more parking is needed in the downtown area.

Not a bad seat in the place. Feels intimate but very proper and sophisticated. Easy walk to grand hotels, Beale Street, and the Fed ex Arena, home of the Memphis Grizzlies
